中文摘要 目的:探討台灣65歲以上老年人中醫門診利用行為及因素,了解一年內有醫療需求曾使用中醫老年人之族群特性,分析影響其使用頻次的相關因素,並探討不同年度台灣老年人中醫使用者的特性是否有所不同。
方法:以國民健康訪問調查資料(NHIS)之65歲以上樣本為研究對象。分析的樣本中,26.04 % 及 26.75 %分別於2005年與2009年使用中醫,串聯全民健康保險就醫紀錄分析相關因素與中醫門診使用的關係,經排除與插補後分析有效樣本1620與2449人。依據醫療服務利用行為模型(behavioral model of health services utilization)歸納樣本特性,分別使用雙變量分析、羅吉斯回歸、零膨脹負二項回歸分析門診使用和頻次與使用者特性,排除未使用者並考慮中醫使用型態後,使用負二項回歸分析門診頻次與使用者的關係,最後使用合併年度樣本納入年度變項分析2005年與2009年中醫使用是否有所差異。
英文摘要 The aim of this study is to investigate the utilization of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) clinics among elderly people in Taiwan. Elderly people aged 65 years and over were analyzed by using data from the National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) and National Health Insurance Research database (NHIRD) in Taiwan. Valid samples were 1620 and 2449 for year 2005 and 2009. We analyzed users’ characteristics which may influence their outpatient clinics utilizations and frequencies by bivariate analysis, logistic regression, zero-inflated negative binomial regression and negative binomial regression according to the data attritions. Demographic information of TCM users included age, gender, education level, insurance status, smoking habits, exercise habits and physical conditions such as history of stroke, history of hypertension, pain condition were significantly associated with TCM usage. Before excluding the non-users, economic status and history of diabetes were significantly associated with high frequency use of TCM. However, after the exclusion, economic status, history of hypertension, history of diabetes, and medical type of traditional Chinese medicine were shown to be related to high frequency utilizations of TCM. There was no significant association between the time variable and TCM usage or high frequency utilizations of TCM in the consolidated sample. Our study indicated that elderly people exhibited different characteristics, in terms of TCM utilizations and frequencies. It is concluded that TCM is a more discretionary medical care for elderly people in Taiwan compared to Western medicine.
